Tottenham Hotspur and Man United both progressed to the quarter-final of the FA Cup after wins on Sunday. 

Spurs dominated Fulham at Craven Cottage and ran out 3-0 winners although it could have been more. Harry Kane combined throughout the match with Christian Eriksen who provided two assists for the England striker.

Kane starred for the visitors scoring a hat-trick to give Mauricio Pochettino's side a much needed win after poor results against Liverpool and Gent recently.

Elsewhere, Man United came from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. 

Danny Graham had given the home side an early lead before Marcus Rashford equalised 10 minutes later.

Blackburn gave as good as they got throughout but the game turned once Zlatan Ibrahimovic entered the fray midway through the second half.

The Swede scored in the 75th minute and that goal was enough to take United into the next round.

The draw for the quarter-final stage was made shortly after the second game and is as follows: Chelsea v Man United, Middlesbrough v Man City/Huddersfield, Spurs v Millwall and Sutton/Arsenal v Lincoln City.
